          The United States Army has its origins in the Continental Army, which fought against the British in the Revolutionary War. The Continental Army was founded on May 10, 1775, less than three weeks after the Battles of Lexington and Concord.

         The founders had a mistrust of standing armies, so the Continental Army was disbanded after the war. However, It soon became clear that a standing army was necessary for the security of the new nation, and the Continental Army was recreated as the U.S. Army on June 14, 1784.
